A few days ago I posted an alert to a meeting at St Rose of Lima church, scheduled for this coming Wednesday. It's purpose is to "collect input" for the upcoming American Catholic Council meeting in Detroit, a meeting denounced by the Archbishop of Detroit.
When I first posted on this matter, St Rose's October 17th bulletin was the current one. It spoke of "an American Catholic meeting in Detroit, MI next June". Well, a funny thing happened in the October 24th bulletin. The St Rose meeting was announced - with no mention whatsoever of the "American Catholic meeting in Detroit MI next June"! My! How very peculiar! I linked to the two bulletins so that you can compare them. Boys and girls, can we all say "deceit and obfuscation"?
The American Catholic Council has a subsidiary website devoted to these "listening sessions". Here it is http://acn.americancatholiccouncil.org/. As you can see, its express purpose is to prepare for the ACC Detroit meeting. Go down the left side bar to where it says, "Upcoming Listening Session Assemblies". Right there you'll see the "Montgomery County MD VOTF Listening Session", scheduled for Wednesday Oct 27th from 7pm-9:30pm. This is the meeting at St Rose.
So there you have it. The local VOTF is assisting the American Catholic Council in its defiance of the proper authority of the archbishop of Detroit by helping to plan this June gabfest there. St Rose of Lima parishioners, what are you going to do about this?
